Denmark’s $2 million support for Uganda’s COVID-19

The Government of Denmark yesterday signed a grant worth $2 million to support the COVID-19 response in Uganda.

The $ 2 million grant will be used to acquire masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for health workers and will also support the improvement of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services in Uganda’s selected districts. The Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) will be used to channel the grant.

Nicolaj Petersen, the Danish Ambassador to Uganda, extended his government’s appreciation to the Government of Uganda for implementing strategic and effective measures to prevent and manage the COVID-19 pandemic at the signing ceremony.

“Uganda has managed to control the spread of the Coronavirus so far. Only 81 cases have been confirmed, most of which were detected at entry”, he said.
